A creamy white sauce with chicken, peas and slivered almonds served over warm biscuits.


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chicken base
  • 1/3 cup sour cream (or Greek yogurt)
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 cups cooked chicken, cubed or shredded
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 1/3 cup toasted slivered almonds
  • 1 tablespoon chopped chives for garnish (optional)


  1. In a large pot, melt butter over medium high heat. Whisk in flour and allow to bubble and brown for a few minutes. Slowly whisk in the milk and chicken base.
  2. Stir frequently until the white sauce begins to simmer, and thicken slightly.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium low, and stir in sour cream and heavy cream and chicken.
  4. Allow to simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Then add in frozen peas, and toasted slivered almonds. To toast almonds, pour them into a small dry saucepan over medium high heat, stirring frequently until they are light golden brown. Watch carefully!
  5. Simmer on low for a few more minutes until the peas are warmed through.
  6. Serve over warm biscuits, or in puff pastry shells and garnish with chives if desired.
